Anybody know where I can get courier/messenger style bags like seen here:



I brought one from the states, but it's about 15 years old and has seen better days...

Thanks!

You can get really good quality Crumpler-brand messenger bags (I think straight from the factory, not copies) at the north end of Hoan Kiem lake. The best stop is the first one you come across walking from the Aldo shoe shop towards the Water Puppet theatre across the road from the lake.

Agree with Nixon baby on the north end of Hoan Kiem lake. I got my messenger bag from there and have been quite pleased with it. It has shown no signs of wear after almost 9 months of daily use.

I don't know if they have the exact style you are looking for but they have a huge selection so there is a good bet yours will be there.

Anyone know if they have these in leather with a decent pocket for a computer?

The shop I went to had some (what I assume to be) leather imitations, and most of the messenger bags did have a pocket for a computer in varying sizes. If you are looking for the real deal, I would hit up a luggage store in Vincom, the garden, or a similar outfit, though I don't know of a specific store in any of them.
